The Sliding Doors Haircut
Have you ever seen the movie "Sliding Doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow? It's a pretty good movie that shows how one small decision can change your life. In the movie, we see what happens when Gwyneth Paltrow's character comes home early from work one day to find her boyfriend cheating on her. We also see the alternative, where she is delayed on her way home and doesn't catch him.
The most exciting part of the movie? In the timeline where she catches her cheating boyfriend, she ends up with the world's most awesome haircut.
You know how sometimes women get that urge to cut their hair short and are constantly searching for that perfect short haircut? This is that haircut.
I know many, many women who have attempted this haircut, myself included. The problem with haircuts like these is they work best when you have a professional styling it for you every day. Otherwise, you just end up with hair that can't be put into a ponytail and constantly falls in your eyes and just doesn't work.
Isn't that always the way?
It's the same thing with Meg Ryan haircuts. My mom is a hair stylist, and it's funny to see how many people will come in asking for the same thing. Meg Ryan hair is definitely one of those. The problem with these haircuts is that they only work if you have that specific kind of hair.
Take my hair, for example. Right now my hair looks like this.
That's me at my birthday party. I got customized Dharma wine. I was pretty excited about it.
See, that's my hair. Not horrible, I guess. But not awesome.
But in my mind, it looks something like these haircuts...
Cobie Smulders and Dianna Agron I am not.
Oh well. I'll just avoid a mirror and keep thinking my hair has that cute disheveled look, and not that "my baby rips my hair out and I haven't used a blow dryer or straightener in a year" look.
Have you tried the Sliding Doors haircut?
